Vertical Vednesday August 26, 2009: 4-Panel Manga

I may be sounding like a broken record by now, but it’s totally worth having that reputation so that I can tell you about Vertical Inc Marketing Director Ed Chavez’s periodic talks on the various genres of manga and other related topics. This Wednesday, Ed will be holding a discussion on the topic of four-panel comics in manga, a genre which includes titles such as Azumanga Daioh, Hidamari Sketch, Lucky Star and K-On! Though I am not privy to any specific conversation topics, often times the discussion includes the history of a particular genre, how it does in Japan, any theories on what makes it work or not work, and then discussion on how it could work better in America.

I’ll be attending once again, and we’ll be meeting at Kinokuniya NYC, located on 6th Ave in Manhattan between 40th and 41st St at 6:30pm until 8pm.

Really, check it out, and contact Ed Chavez to say you’re coming.
